Scholars, are there actually non-Google alternatives to Google Scholar?

thinkin about how i habitually think of myself as inexperienced in work and volunteering

but I'll soon be working towards leadership/supervisor positions

and our estimates of what makes a "experienced volunteer" must change slightly

Does anybody have any good resources on (especially decolonized) Indian tea culture? Maybe a short video or something?

if i were subjected to capitalism, i would simply cultivate kinship with those near me and develop ways of supporting each other outside the framework of profit seeking

a huge cohort of junior doctors switch rotations tomorrow in my hospital

our induction schedule has just changed at *checks watch* 1540 the day before

why is there so much of "white supremacy in space"

by this I obviously mean an excited small dog wagging their whole bum is the best

Show thread

small dogs are great

they greet joys and sorrows with their whole being

Several reminders for anyone requiring them, take any which apply 

> unclench your jaw
> take a sippy of the hydration of your choice
> stretch your back
> blink and give your eyes a screen break
> check your lap before you stand up if you were using any glassware just now
> plot the destruction of capital
> cycle your laundry load

Thanks everyone who came to my #SummerSchool presentation, it was a delight! ^^^^_^^^^

the orville 

this is a step ahead of that doc episode where crusher got stuck in a dwindling ship, I guess????

Hey, fedi.

I've got a talk lined up for #SummerSchool2022.

On Sunday, 31 July 2022 at 0200 hours UTC (7:00pm Pacific), I'll be doing a talk on using #Python to parse user input.

The Summer School talk format is 15 minutes presenting/45 for questions, so this'll be a #speedrun.

More details to come as @SummerSchool posts details.

Please boost?

Just put up a copy of my #SummerSchool / #WinterSchool talk in YouTube with full captions + the text of most questions from the chat & timecoded links to the reply, so if you're not 100% sure about what I'm replying to, you can scroll down and find it!

Got room @ Utrecht? :boost_requested:

Do you have a room/apartment/studio, or know anybody who might have one? Please get in touch, thank you! :boost_requested:
